Tasting Notes

Pinot Gris is a pink-skinned grape that if left in contact with juice, gives the wine a rosé color. The wine is fresh and reminiscent of strawberry and stone fruit. Made from a small block of Pinot Gris, 50% of the harvest is whole bunch fermented and the other 50% is a whole berry ferment. The two batches are pressed together to old hogsheads, where they remain for 3 months prior to a clean rack. No finings or filtration. An orange wine.
